I liked how they gave us warm towels to wipe our hands before dinner and afterwards when we were done.
Then there was dessert. I liked the chocolate dipped strawberry and loved the creme brulee. Everything else was blah.
In fact, I loved the creme brulee so much that I went back and got three more!
The Mister also really loved it so he got four more! I'm telling you, it was amaze-balls.
The birthday surprise for the birthday girl.
And then at the end I got cotton candy... which I ended up hating. I normally love cotton candy but this was bubble gum flavour and that's just a no for me.
During another day, when we were both free, my sister and I went to Ikea together. We ran straight to the cafeteria to get us some yummy Swedish meatballs because we were starving.
Then we went to see the showcase rooms. I loved the firewood stacked in the fireplace in this room. This is great if the fireplace isn't real or if it's too old to be used anymore. Another great idea is to put a bunch of candles in there so that when you light it, it resembles a fireplace.
We loved the idea of having space behind the bed so that it's not typically against a wall. It's nice if you have a room big enough to do that.
I loved the shelving and seating in this little reading nook. Sometimes houses come with odd structures coming out of the ceiling or wall. The use of shelving is a great way to utilize the awkward space.
I actually really love this Varde wall shelf. I have a lot of knick knacks so this is a great place to showcase and store them. I also came across this Lack wall shelf that also looks like it'd be pretty good to store knick knacks.
Need I say more about this media and shelving unit? Perfection.
I love utilizing space. These floor to ceiling book shelves give so much storage space. Plus, I really love how the shelving unit wraps around the corner too so it looks more cohesive.
I love this kitchen. Especially the big industrial lights that hang over the kitchen island.
After Ikea we found ourselves at Chapters.
I came upon these, a musical pinecone and acorn (if you know about me and the Mister you'd know what these represent).
p.s. the next blog post I'll be writing up might be when I'm on the train headed to Montreal!! But if I can, I'll try to post before then =)
"Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work, driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for, in order to get to a job you need to pay for the clothes, car and the house you leave empty all day in order to afford to live in it." -Ellen Goodman
